    Nice burst. You gonna get a Jazz bridge cover? That's a P bass cover

    I agree with Webtroll, that cover looks out of place. Nice bass otherwise.

    Agree with above. Although it's not a Fender, putting those covers on it gets the ol' fisheye from those in the know. Just looks "off" to us.

    Looks like the neck or bridge is misaligned. All the strings are shifted up closer to the E string side.

    Thanks! I've always been a fan of the burst colors... Too bad there aren't any Rics in burst! A 3-tone sunburst rick would be killer!

    You guys are more patient than me. I won't sit through a 30 second Chevron ad to see a bass.

    You guys that link to photobucket or another site of its type... just post photos of your bass already.

    OP, congrats on the new to you bass.

    Thanks immigrant! I was originally going to upload all of the pictures directly on the forum, however.. I can only post two at a time, I'd have to post several replies, it just didn't seem worth the hassle to me.

    I think if you took off the neck pickup cover the bridge cover wouldn't look quite so out of place.

    I'm actually planning on getting rid of both of the covers, if I decide I want them later on down the road they will be JAZZ covers, instead of P covers.

    Sometimes I like covers, sometimes not, they don't always look good on every single bass they're used on. But as mentioned, covers are going to be done away with.
